Providing practical tools for positive change
Positive Change Guru is run by twin sisters, Viv Thackray and Gill Thackray, both of whom have a passion for sharing practical tools for positive change. Having worked across time zones and cultures, we know that, whether you’re in Beijing, New York or London, challenge is ever present and when managed well, can provide exciting opportunities for innovation, creativity and positive change. If you’ve asked yourself any of the following questions, then Positive Change Guru is for you;
- What’s my focus?
- How can I positively change my business, my team, my organisation?
- How can I be inspired to create a richly energised, positive and rewarding environment for myself and those around me?
Why positive change?
There’s no magic in knowing how to successfully implement and navigate change. We pride ourselves on sharing expertise through practical, evidence based strategies and techniques taken from our backgrounds in mainstream and positive psychology (Viv belonged to the very first MAPP cohort in Europe, Gill is a mindfulness in the workplace expert and has a first class MSc in Mindfulness, a globally rare qualification ) . We believe a positive approach is the first step to developing new habits, skills, cultures and processes for individuals and organisations.
Tech start ups, non-profits and Fortune 100 companies trust us to provide a global expert service. We’re passionate about working with you to unlock potential and implement positive and practical change.
We’ve both experienced lots of changes in our own lives, having travelled and worked around the globe and grown our own successful businesses. The Positive Change Guru site is about sharing what we’ve learned and giving something back.
PCG is UK based, we work internationally throughout the private, public and not for profit sectors.
Guru is a sanskrit word, with ‘gu’ meaning darkness and ‘ru’ meaning dispeller. Guru is often translated to mean dispeller of darkness. Other sources claim the meaning is more accurately translated as heavy, so the guru is one who is ‘heavy with knowledge.’ Whichever translation you prefer, Positive Change Guru aims to give you all the heavy weight information you will need to be your own positive change guru.
Positive Change Guru Giving
Positive Change Guru supports the Koru Trust, a small charity run by Gill, providing support to people in need on the Thailand/Burma border. The Trust provides basic necessities, educational supplies and sponsors students to continue their education to the highest level.
